PingData servers provide information about their current state and any problems encountered. If a problem occurs, run the collect-support-data tool in the /bin directory. The tool aggregates all relevant support files into a zip file that can be sent to a support provider for analysis. The tool also runs data collector utilities, such as jps, jstack, and jstat plus other diagnostic tools for the operating system.

The tool may only archive portions of certain log files to conserve space, so that the resulting support archive does not exceed the typical size limits associated with e-mail attachments.

The data collected by the collect-support-data tool may vary between systems. The data collected includes the configuration directory, summaries and snippets from the logs directory, an LDIF of the monitor and RootDSE entries, and a list of all files in the server root.

  1. Navigate to the server root directory.
  2. Run the collect-support-data tool. Include the host, port number, bind DN, and bind password.
    $ bin/collect-support-data \
    --hostname --port 389 \
    --bindDN "cn=Directory Manager"
    --bindPassword secret \
    --serverRoot /opt/PingData<server> \
    --pid 1234
  3. Email the zip file to a support provider.
